Scots in­de­pen­dence calls at ‘record level’

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

A RECORD 58% of Scots would vote Yes in a fu­ture in­de­pen­dence ref­er­en­dum, says a poll.

The re­sult is likely to shock the UK Gov­ern­ment which is al­ready struggling to get its pro-Union mes­sage heard in Scot­land.

The SNP has said a vote for them in next year’s Holy­rood elec­tions would be a man­date for a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum on in­de­pen­dence.

Boris John­son has re­peat­edly re­fused to agree to a fresh vote af­ter Scot­land voted 55% to 45% to stay in the UK six years ago.

His spokesman said: “It was a once in a gen­er­a­tion vote and must be re­spected.” First Min­is­ter Ni­cola Stur­geon tweeted: “In­de­pen­dence is about Scot­land… de­ter­min­ing the path we want to take at home and in the world.”

The Ip­sos MORI poll quizzed 1,045 peo­ple for STV.
